Speaker: Heath McAllister, ND, RH (AHG). A host of conditions are caused by fungal infections, from athlete’s foot and toenail fungus to vaginal yeast infections, valley fever (coccidioidomycosis), lung infections (histoplasmosis, and aspergillosis) and cryptococcal infections. These pose challenges to the clinician since there are relatively few antifungal medications, and those medicines can have serious side effects. Botanical formulas for fungal infections and biofilms may include Allium sativum, Azadirachta indica, Morinda citrifolia, Berberine spp, grapefruit seed extract, Isatis tinctorial and olive leaf, among others.
